The "great" Madison?
Now I don't know if you are being honest or sarcastic. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say you are being honest and reply as to why I was so vocal about Loaiza, since you are still fairly new here.
Quite a few people were gearing up for this season and pegging Loaiza as their #1 starter and wondering which round would make a good pick for him. All I did was show why he most certainly was not a #1 starter for any fantasy team and possibly not even worth a roster spot depending on your staff. I gave solid background as to why he would not live up to expectations this year and even went so far as to say he would have his best season ever not including last year. Unfortunately 4+ era and 12 wins would be Loaiza's best season ever if last year isn't included, but it does not help many fantasy teams.
Yes, if my prediction turns out incorrect, then I've got quite a bit of crow to eat. If it turns out correct though, then I managed to help quite a few fantasy players out there. That's a price worth paying in my opinion. There were much bolder predictions out there than me saying that Loaiza would have a good season compared to his past, but not good enough for most fantasy teams.
There were several posts about it due to quite a few people disagreeing with me, and that's quite ok. I had several good discussions about Loaiza with many members and guests alike. It was a hot topic this offseason and I had done a lot of research. Extra starting pitching options is a good thing right? I read quite a bit about him simply to know if he was now "the real deal" or not.
Unfortunately nowadays, the word "hate" is heavily overused. Anyone who doesn't think a player is all that great is labeled a "hater". Sad, sad day when that word is just tossed around like it means nothing.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
